to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
was good. michelle obama's speech was good. markell rubio's speech -- marco rubio's speech last week was good. going back and forth, trying to decide which way i will leave. i think it will come down to -- you can have a talking point and you can have these things you're going to do and say you are going to do all you want. it will come down to leadership. the bottom line for me as that barack obama had the control congress his first two years, he got nothing but his own way to do what he wanted to do. i am sorry. he rammed everything three. he did it in a matter of fact way and lost respect of his fellow constituents. the last two years with the republicans are getting a bad rep, beating not want to work with someone like that. >> levy dumping in -- let me jump in on that. let's go back to the floor. >> you probably could get a greater distance -- and that it greater distance between guam of florida. we begin with the mayor of riviera speech, florida. your thoughts? >> with the speech president clinton and left side of michelle, we are going to vote for president obama. how can you
're going to see ann romney, we're going to see michelle obama as two of the most effective figures in this campaign. >> not two of the most, the two most effective campaigners in both campaigns. i don't think there's any question about that. michelle obama will lead it off next week in charlotte for her husband. i happen to believe, and you know the kind of family in which i have been raised, i'm living with all women, and i have been witness to this both in my wife and my daughters and now my grand daughters, i think this is the century of women. i really do believe that. >> hooray! >> there's going to be more gains made by more women across every part of our lives. cultural, political, and economic. and i think that there is even among some republican women out there, that that party doesn't quite buy into that yet. i mean, there are extraordinary achievements made by nikki haley and condi rice and everyone else. but the real issue on this campaign, for women, will be will social issues, or economic issues, will one trump the other? because the social issues are very important to
antonio mayor jewulian castro a will wrap up with a speech by first lady michelle obama. tomorrow will include speeches by massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren and former president bill clinton followed by the delegate roll call to nominate president obama for a second term. >> did you see the article in politico about how elizabeth warren is a star here but is having trouble gaining traction in massachusetts. mike, you said it a long time ago, she is a national star for the democratic party but in her own state she's trailing by 5 points and there a lot of democrats that always vote democrat that like brown. they say he's one of us, he's what we would say in the south a good ol' boy. he's not exactly good ol' boy but he talks like those guys who call into boston radio stations bitching about the red sox. that's his persona. i don't know if that's really him but he's got it now. >> again, these two guys can tell you, maybe buttress this point of view, massachusetts is more than cambridge and beacon hill. it's a very moderate state once you get past 128, the outer beltwa

tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol

remain the hope of the earth. >> first lady michelle obama and mitt romney were campaigning today in virginia. and with only 54 days until the election, we have a new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist poll of that state and two other crucial battleground states, florida and ohio. joining me now to take us through the numbers is nbc political director and host of nbc's "daily rundown," chuck todd. what do we have to know about this poll? >> part of me wants to call these states the iron triangle of the battleground, if you will. it feels like all of the ways to 270 all go through these three states first. but let me start in virginia. this is where the president is sitting at a five-point lead. 49-44. ohio, his lead is a couple of points higher, 53 to 43. florida, on identical, 49-44, to what it is in virginia. all of these three states have the president sitting at 49 or 50. all of them have his job approval sitting at 49 or 50. and all of them for the first time since we've been polling in these swing states have the right track/wrong track above 40%. that's the first time we've s

crush on michelle obama. it's an equal opportunity there for everybody. but i think he's an extraordinary man. >> from "seinfeld" to beer now. according to scarborough research, no relation to joe scarborough, we should note here, your beer apparently says a lot about your politics. if you tip back a sam adams when your feet are up, you're likely to vote republican. if you pick up a heineken when you pick your poison, you're more likely to be a democrat. and those whose brew of choice is bud lite apparently don't have any political allegiance. not sure what that says. beer may not be the only way to gauge political allegiance. it may also be possible to tell which jokes you think are funny. allison dagnus, author of "a conservative walks into a bar," says our opinions and biases affect our perception of jokes when politics are involved. if you want to test yourself, check out a political litmus test in six jokes. it's on npr's website. >>> now for a little trail dust, what you may have missed from the campaign trail. here's vice president joe biden just a few hours ago

on tuesday september 4 with michelle obama, the first lady of the united states. on the fifth, we have president bill clinton and so many others speaking here. our great keynote speaker, the mayor of san antonio, and so many others, who will be taking to the stage to talk about the vision and the message that the president and his campaign has for the next four years. the stage and screen is behind me will allow them to deliver that message in a visually engaging way, both to the thousands of people here in the arena and to the millions who will be watching at home or online. today is really exciting for me. i started working on convention planning almost three years ago, believe it or not. and moved here, as i said, last june to oversee this process. it is hard for me to thank so many people who have worked tirelessly on this. i would like to thank first and foremost our staff, the staff of the democratic national convention committee, and our partners at the host committee here in charlotte for the incredibly hard work they did to make today and to make next week possible. it really

he has to land some punches. obama just has to get out alive. >> michelle, in your latest article for the daily beast, you say that the stakes could not be higher as mike was saying for mr. romney. in fact, you say that unless mr. romney hits it out of the park on wednesday, his dreams of sitting in the oval office could be, i'm quoting you, deader than disco. couldn't he come back in week two, much as people like me who love nothing more than hearing the ojs or the temptations even today. >> it's not mee who thinks that denver is a do or die situation. we're talking about republicans who have been out there saying he really has to nail this. people have been waiting for him to have his break-through moment. there are very few opportunities going forward. republican donors and republican -- other elected officials are getting very nervous, and if he doesn't make a great showing in denver, it's going to be trouble for him, and the problem is his team has raised expectations really high. beth my esmth rs memo is a complete turn around from before when they were saying we're going to
